Bullying a person may appear to be fun because it brings out the savage nature of us, the need to dominate others, the need to show strength and power. More often than not, a person that bullies does it without knowing the consequences, until they themselves become the victim.
This reminds me of the Captain America film, where the professor said, “Because the strong man who has known power all his life, may lose respect for that power, but a weak man knows the value of strength, and knows… compassion.” That was why he picked the weakest, the one that is always bullied by the strongest.
Because a weak person that was bullied before knew the feeling of being bullied, thus they are more likely to stand up for the weak when they are at the top. For those into cyber-bullying, remember that words can hurt someone, not to mention everything typed online are recorded forever. Barack Obama once said, the future president will probably be someone that doesn’t share much online, unfortunately, he was proven wrong when Donald Trump was elected.
How to stop cyber bullying? It takes two to tango, and if you choose to ignore and not respond to a cyberbully’s message, he or she will get bored and move on. If problem continues to exist, save the evidence and lodge a police report, citing depression and the thoughts of suicide.
